You Are Here With Studio Calico and GlueArts!!

We're back!

With another amazing week with Studio Calico and their beautiful kits!

Each of our GlueArts Designers were sent the October "Field Guide" kit from Studio Calico. It was filled with patterned papers, cardstock, an exclusive Studio Calico stamp, butterflies, brads, wasabi tape and much more!

We hope you'll join us this week as we continue to show you all the many ways our talented team created with the same products!

"You Are Here...In My Heart" Collage
GlueArts Designer: Patti Milazzo

Supply List: 


U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam
Raise ‘Ns

Studio Calico: Field Guide Kit


Other: 

Jenni Bowlin Squeeze Punches –Tab, Flight & Grandma’s Doily (Fiskars Americas)
8 x 10 black frame



Instructions:

Cut background paper to fit your frame. I removed the glass from my frame so that my collage could be very dimensional. On the background paper, mark any overlap of the frame edges with a pencil. Then cut the lined paper to fit in the center – I cut mine to 4.5 x 7, distressed the edges and then adhered it in the center with the Glue Glider Pro and Perma Tac PRO+ Adhesive.
With the stamps from the kit, stamp “You Are Here” on the bottom right of the tag which is also in the kit. Adhere the tag to the right side of the center paper. Cut/punch strips of pattern paper and layer these on the tag, as shown. Cut a large heart from cardstock and pattern paper. Adhere this (overlapping the tag slightly) using U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam. I used several scrap pieces from previous projects. Attach a small length of trim to the tag using one of the large brads.
Create the 3 circle accents with a mix of embellishments from the kit and punches. Use U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam, Raise ‘Ns and Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares to secure these to the lower left side of the heart.
Apply alpha stickers from the kit as well as a small strip of pattern paper at the top left of the heart. Use U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to adhere the bird punch above the alpha stickers.
Finish the tag with some Washi Tape from the kit and a stamped arrow. I doubled the U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam for extra dimension. Complete the collage with additional brads and butterflies.


Last week's winner of the Studio Calico kit along with Glue Glider PRO is:
